Activate Cycle Academy's Opens New Cytech Training Facility

Posted on in Business News ,Brands & Products News , Cycles News

CACAytech training provider Activate Cycle Academy (ACA) has just opened a new cycle maintenance training workshop in Bracknell, Berkshire.

Based at Activate Learning's Bracknell & Wokingham College campus this brand new workshop is the latest addition to their expanding number of Cytech training workshops across the country.

Matt Grant, Sales and Marketing Manager at ACA said "Bracknell is now our fourth workshop in England, the second we have opened during the COVID-19 period. I am delighted to say that the need for us to increase our training capacity to meet the demand for Cytech training continues as we are seeing more and more people looking to retrain and upskill as a cycle technician to join the buoyant cycle trade sector."

ThiBracknell workshops purpose built workshop in the heart of Bracknell town offers the very latest state-of-the-art cycle maintenance training facility. With Park Tool continuing its partnership in supporting all of ACA's workshops, all trainees can expect to be working with, training on and using the very latest tools and equipment from some of the world's finest bicycle manufacturers and distributors when they attend a Cytech course.

Grant continues, "Our team has worked exceptionally hard to get this fantastic workshop open in these challenging times. We had to navigate the latest lockdown at the start of the year, when all our workshops were closed, in line with all other educational and training establishments and to deal with ever increasing lead times for orders of tools, bikes and equipment. It's been a remarkable achievement and one we're all immensely proud of."

Their expansion plans don't stop with Bracknell, as they hope that they will shortly be able to release details of another new Cytech workshop to open in the North East in the summer.

The new Bracknell workshop is already open for practical training, with the Cytech journey starting with Theory one online - to celebrate the new location and for the rest of May, Cytech are offering £30 off the Theory one online course which can be completed online and in your own time, to get you started with your journey. The distance learning course precedes the Technical one - practical course and the two together combine to give you the full Technical one qualification.
